Why should I be surprised?

October 16, 2009

It was more than 70 years ago my grandparents packed their bags and got the hell out of Louisianaa. So why would I be surprised that there is still blatant racism in the Bayou? I wouldn’t. Just read this story.

Has anyone told this Judge about our President? Maybe word hasn’t gotten out down there that Obama is the product of an interracial marriage. Then again Obama’s parents did split-up so maybe we shouldn’t be so hard on the racist Judge. Then again most marriages do end in divorce.

Read the  San Francisco Chronicle spin on this racial story and tell me if my grandparents trek was in vain.

“From another point-of-view, the case is clearly no different from the discrimination gay couples suffer when government refuses to grant them right to marry.”

“Clearly” no different. WTF

    I am amazed that his sort of thing happens in the States. Particularly after the US media networks took it upon themselves to give an Australian Comedy show an absolute drubbing last week for an alleged racially inappropriate comedy skit.

    It will be interesting to see how Oprah and others deal with this homegrown expressed racist conduct. She was quick to attack Australia and hold up America’s values as so superior. Now the US media and their high moral ground make them appear to be nothing more than hypocrites.

    So how about you guys fixing up your own shit before you decide to pass your self righteous comments.

    Thanks.
    I think you are correct.
    BUT…
    By “you guys” you meant the American racist elite. Right?
    Racists are racists.
    Just when we think it’s all about class the racists take their rightful throne as biggest A-holes.
    BTW, send me a link of the comedy skit.

    Tangipahoa Parish has another claim to fame: It was the filming location for In the Heat of the Night, the TV show about race and the law.
